[Severus is wearing a deeper than usual scowl as he stirs a simmering cauldron, adding a dash of several herbs sitting in neat rows to his right. He slams down the ladle and glares at the potion as though that will complete it faster.]

[Blaise jumps outside the door, startled by a loud sound from within. He takes a deep breath, steeling himself for Severus' bad mood. He knocks, wondering if he'll even be allowed to stay.]

Come in.

[Severus relents his Boil-Damn-You stare as he realizes that if the potion boils too soon, it will be ruined and he'll have to begin all over again.]

[Blaise steps into Severus' office, moving cautiously. Voice soft, pleasant and soothing,] Good Evening, Professor.

If it has been a good evening for you, I am exceedingly envious.

[Severus steps away from his work table, rolling his shoulders slightly in an attempt to ease his tension.]

But you provide a welcome distraction.

[With a quick, judging glance at his potion, Severus washes his hands and rings a small bell. A house elf quickly appears with tea and buscuits, and vanishes immediately afterward. He gestures toward the fire.]

If you will.

[Blaise chuckles slightly,] I didn't think you allowed for distractions, [He says, walking over to his chair.]

[Severus sits in his own chair and arches an eyebrow as he looks at Blaise.] Everyone needs a distraction occasionally. Even I. [He scowls] Especially dealing with temperamental potions.

[Blaise glances over at the potion in question, looks back at Severus,] What are you making?

[Severus remains silent as he pours their tea.] An experimental potion--it's an idea I've been toying with for several months. I would be working on additions to the wolvesbane potion, but... [A smirk tugs at the corner of his mouth] I've already added chaparral, and I have no wish for Lupin to be suspicious. [His smirk deepens as he relives the look on Lupin's face.] I do hope it was especially awful.

[Blaise laughs, looking at Severus like he wishes he didn't believe him.] So it's personal work, then? [He asks, trying not to wonder if the Professor spoke with Dumbledore about his apprenticeship.]

I suppose you could say that--I've been attempting to infuse certain qualities of wandwork into a potion. Take Wingardium Leviosa, although that is a simple example. If I could find some way to infuse that charm into a potion, then you wouldn't necessarily need your wand to cast the spell. [Severus stares at his tea] It hasn't been approved by the Ministry, as of yet--but it's much more challenging than the drivel the Experimental Potions Department sends me to correct.

[Blaise straightens, nodding thoughtfully,] But. Couldn't Muggles use them then as well, if they got their hands on them?

[Severus inclines his head] Although I have not had the opportunity to perform any experiments, it is theoretically possible. I was considering finding a way to personalize it for those with magical blood--or simply keeping it for my own private use.

[Blaise chews his lip, mulling it over. He sips his tea and, after a moment, says, simply] Interesting.

[Severus settles back in his chair] I believe the idea has merit. [His eyes darken, and he shoots another look at his simmering cauldron] Although, at the moment, it is infuriatingly uncooperative.

[Blaise tilts his head,] How do you mean?
